Wow, there is no way I can single out one combination. Regardless of the actual combo, when the boys are on it is where they really seperate themselves from anyone else out there.

One semi-unusual reversed combo that comes to mind is the Eyes>Estimated from Colgate 77. The Eyes is a rocket fueled steamroller that refuses to stop running untill your large intestine has wrapped itself around your brain in a last ditch effort to stop it from exploding.

Oh dear. That would leave him with what for brains?

I've heard people say a show is "the shits." Didn't quite understand the mechanism until now.

"...wrapped itself around your brain in a last ditch effort to stop it from exploding." Now THAT's what I'd call intestinal fortitude.

Sorry, couldn't resist a good clean (or is it unclean) joke.

I always liked Truckin' > Smokestack or Spoonful . For me this is the best example ( and a spectacular Spoonful ) ,

edit - I like the guy who wishes JG a Happy Halloween before Truckin' , even though this isn't '70 , and the band is in the rock star bubble wrap .

I like this combo as well. How bout a Truckin' > Smokestack to open the FIRST set. With some nice harmonica from Matthew Kelly on the latter as well! I haven't listened in a while but I remember this one being surprisingly good (I was just beginning to break myself into the 80's in the latter part of '09): http://www.archive.org/details/gd85-03-28.sbd.griesman.5313.sbeok.shnf

edit: the soundboard is quite nice and Jerry rips it up on Smokestack

One of my favorites as well.

This ones got a really nice segue with the whole band gradually changing the tempo and tonality instead of Jerry starting the Franklin's Tower chord progression by himself.http://www.archive.org/details/gd82-08-03.matrix.chappell.30705.sbeok.flacf

Obviously there is no better combo than Dark Star> Other One!

And the dynamite Pirates World show is one of my very favorite examples of this incredible exacta...

I won't say this is my all time FAVORITE, because ST Stephen>11> DS is my all time favorite unseen combo but I think the best GD combo I saw was Iko> DS > Terrapin.

I will give a close second to Scarlet> Touch> Fire for 1 sweet trifecta.

What, not a big fan of Vince's stirring renditions of Baba O'Reilly>Tomorrow Never Knows. A duo for the ages My Friend. Dark Star>The Other One is nice and primal and all - sure you could go there - but hell gimmie an aging Jerry in Bermuda shorts and away we'll sail...

Eyes > China Doll is a super-nice 1974 pairing.

How bout a Dark Star > Spanish Jam

w/Duane Allman!
http://www.archive.org/details/gd1970-02-11.sbd.smith.patched.99154.sbeok.flac16

legendary (heres a plug for matrix format: gives the Wall of Sound SBDs some much needed air and incorporates the reverb of the hall which is essential in hearing how the music actually sounded)

This is an exquisite early 80's sequence I just heard last night: Space > The Wheel > The Other One

Love it when they took a freaky spacey Dark Star into a cowboy tune, El Paso or Cumberland

Eyes> China Doll

and love just about any transition into He's Gone

love the smoking transitions from China into Rider in 74 especially

this will probably upset some but as much as I love Fire by the time Fire came around Scarlet started getting a little spent for me. I like the up temp ones better. Not saying I still don't like it but not as much after 78 ( Scarlet that is ). Wish they would have continued doing Fire out of Space like that Killer one from 10-31-80/Dead Set
